Updated on September 13, 2019

Last year IIMs clubbed all these Delhi NCR cities into one exam city as NCR. However, IIM Kozhikode has changed this pattern and has now segreated all thesze test cities. Now the Delhi NCR candidates can choose any 4 preferred test cities out of Delhi, New Delhi, Noida, Gurugram. Ghaziabad, Faridabad, Panipat, Greater Noida and others. Last year there was no such choice available for CAT test takers.

IIM Kozhikode has also confirmed that the candidates would be allotted the nearest test city to their address. In comparison to last year, number of CAT 2019 test cities have been increased to 156 from 147 to accommodate higher number of test takers. The important details about the CAT test venues in these CAT test cities 2019 are available on the CAT 2019 website. The name of the CAT test centre within the test city is indicated in the CAT Admit Card.
According to CAT 2019 exam convener and faculty at IIM Kozhikode, Prof. Shubhasis Dey, "CAT 2019 will be conducted in test centres spread across approximately 156 cities. Candidates will be given the option to select four test cities in order of preference. Cities and centres will be assigned to the candidates only after the last date for CAT 2019 registration and hence candidates need not rush to block slots and cities in the initial days of registration. The concerned authorities will try their best to assign candidates to their first preferred city. In case this is not possible, they will be assigned a city following their given order of preference. In the rare case that a candidate is not allotted any of the preferred cities, he/she will be allotted an alternate city. However, candidates will not be able to select the session because it will be assigned randomly."
All Delhi NCR Cities Separated
All the 8 important cities in Delhi NCR, which were clubbed into one city last year have been separated again, although a little late by CAT exam centre 2019. Now the CAT applicants from Delhi NCR can choose any four preferred test cities out of them. The cities avaibale for Delhi NCR candidates are:
Facility to Save Travel Time
Now a resident of Noida or Ghaziabad may choose these test cities separately. This will help in reducing the travel time and inconvenience that was caused last year.
The wastage of time due to running and travelling to a CAT test centre in Delhi NCR stands reduced for CAT 2019. Finding that CAT test takers will be at loss, IIM Kozhikode has taken the matter a bit seriously and has cleared the confusion. Now there are sufficient and clearly marked test city choices without creating any confusion.
